Orphea - Heroes of the Storm Cosplay
Popping back into deviantART after being away for many months to share an exciting first look at the Orphea costume that I had the great honour to wear at BlizzCon 2018 last weekend. The costume was made by the local team Henchmen Studios and was commissioned by Blizzard to promote the addition of Orphea as a new hero to Heroes of the Storm. It was such a pleasure to portray this gorgeous new character. It was my first time attending BlizzCon and boy was it ever a tremendous way to attend the con for the first time. XD Everyone at Henchmen Studios was incredibly sweet and great to work with and I was so honoured to meet the development team from HoTS that created Orphea. It was a magical weekend!

This costume was 100% made by Henchmen Studios. A big thank you to Kiga, Gilly, Meghan, Aaron, Kyle, Maty, Kevin and everyone else at Henchmen for making BlizzCon so amazing for me with this beautiful costume! A special shout-out to Aaron and Gilly as well as Stephanie from Blizzard for being my handlers at the event. The costume was pretty complicated and included a giant relic that I could wear on my back. It looks quite heavy, but it was only 15 lbs. I hope to one day Cosplay as Orphea again. I'm so in love with the character!

Just wanted to make a headliner post for the rest of the year regarding my planned conventions and Cosplay projects. I'll edit this journal throughout the year as I make plans to attend more events or work on costumes. If you would like to read about my convention and Cosplay experiences, check out my website here. I will continue to add new photos to my DA account when I get photos back from shoots, but I will no longer be writing detailed journal entries.

I now have an Instagram account. You can view it here.

2017 Conventions:

Toronto ComiCON | Anime North | Fan Expo Canada | Toronto Fan Days Holiday Show

2017 Planned Handmade Costumes:

Madoka Kaname - School Uniform (Madoka Magica) [Complete] | Wacky Wavy Inflatable Tube Man [Complete] | Kagome Higurashi (InuYasha) [Complete]

I'm Rebecca, a Canadian Cosplayer without much artistic talent aside from some minor skill with hand and machine sewing. I love attending pop culture conventions and have been going to conventions in the Toronto area since 2001. I love to travel although I don't do it very much. I also love the themes and atmosphere of Halloween. October is one of my favourite times of the year because of the holiday. My love for Halloween has spilled over into the everyday as I enjoy watching horror movies and playing survival horror games. I work full-time as a general game designer/office assistant at an indie video game company that makes iPhone/iPad apps.

Current Residence: Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Favourite genre of music: Rock, Electronic

I’m active on Instagram now actually. I don’t post on here anymore. I just pop in every once and a while. I made Sakura’s new school uniform from the new Card Captor Sakura Clear Card Anime over the spring and I’m really happy with how it came together. Not sure what I want to work on next. ^^
